an announcement moments ago about a cease-fire deal the demands hamas stops launching launching rockets into israel while the israelis call them into the airstrikes on the gaza strip. but from what we have seen right now, it could get uglier before better, and that is where we begin this hour of "america live." welcome, i am megyn kelly. 2:00 p.m. eastern time. following days of relentless attacks by hamas and a bus bombing in the city of tel aviv. at this moment, we are getting reports of rockets flying from the gaza strip into israel. let's get to leave until -- leland vittert. reporter: we are certainly further along towards the cease-fire than when we talked last night. everything fell apart and the wheels came off. there has been an announcement of a broader agreements between hamas and israel. the israelis, the number one thing they wanted was an end to the rocket. that is the very key thing for the israeli people. the israelis and jihad and other organizations, egypt is being held responsible by the united states and the entire world for the rockets coming out of the gaza
. >> thanks so much for that, dan lothian at the white house. we're just over two days into the israeli/hamas cease-fire along the gaza border and already both sides are accusing the other of breaking the truce. israel says three rockets were launched from gaza into israel on thursday. and a shooting incident at the border today has both sides on edge. joining me now is sara sidner in jerusalem. sara, hamas is saying right now that some israeli troops opened fire on palestinian citizens. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, they have very differing story from what the israeli military's saying. here's what the hamas health ministry has said. they said that one person was killed and that 24 people were injured. they say that they were farmers, they were on the gaza side of the border and that the israeli military opened fire on them. however, in talking to the israeli military, they say that there were several groups of men who were protesting, come up to the fence, some trying to enter israel and that the soldiers fired in the air warning shots. when the warnings were not heeded, they beg
, there are three major stories we're following. israel seems on the brink of all-out war with hamas. tanks and troops appear to be preparing for a ground war. here, stateside, republicans met at the state house to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. earlier today, general david petraeus said that the cia talking points meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it
a central patrrole the ceasefire between israel and hamas is right now the target of massive protests. tens of thousands of protesters are in tahrir square and other cities calling morsi a dictator and the new pharaoh. he granted himself broad new powers specially allowing him to run the country unchecked. and the truce is facing its first challenge. a palestinian farmer was shot dead when israeli officers shot near the border. first i want to go to cairo and reza sayah who's following all the developments there. just a few moments ago, morsi spoke to a huge crowd. what did he say? >> well, he tried to calm things down. he defended his position. he defended the controversial decrees he announced last night telling his opponents that he's part of the revolution, one of the people. certainly at this hour he's got a lot of opponents and critics who do not agree with him and are are expressing their outrage in the streets. dramatic scenes in cairo. very reminiscent of the scenes we saw during the 2011 egyptian revolution. back then it was aimed at former president hosni mubarak. now aimed at mr
allies of hamas which is an offshoot of the muslim brotherhood. on the other hand, he does not want to be dragged into a conflict with israel. he wants to protect the peace treaty. certainly he does not want a crisis to dictate his priorities. he has the most to lose if there was a ground war. in the process, he built a working relationship with the u.s. you have to credit president obama for understanding this opportunity. if the israelis even had any gain at all in this operation, it is principally really in the relationship with egypt. this was a relationship that was not defined. they were worried about deterioration. this crisis enabled them to create a link where egypt now is part of a deal, one that is supposed to be an enforcer of a deal. stature hashis risen. host: have they had direct contact? guest: i am not aware of any because the president has avoided that. the israelis typically even in negotiations, day-to-day negotiations, the egyptians subcontractor these issues mostly to the intelligence services. hosni mubarak did that as well. it was not even a foreign ministry
: new signs of tough challenges ahead for gaza. number two leader of hamas now saying the group will not stop arming itself. a commented suggesting that indirect negotiations on the border deal could be very difficult. in the meantime, life at the gaza strip returning to normal after the week long strikes. tens of those of children heading back to school. cease-fire appears to be holding. conner powell with more on that. >> reporter: this is still fragile cease-fire. it is important to point out that the cease-fire is holding but still massive challenges has to be dealt with. israel and hamas will send representatives to cairo to continue negotiations through the mediators. later this next couple of days or so probably starting on monday, but there is talks from hamas saying they will continue to rearm and continue to fight, but right now the cease-fire is holding as part of the agreement. israel said they will ease the blockade around gaza, but israel wants guarantees for security because these are two of the really big points that will be worked out in the coming days. still,
. hamas has retaliated warning that israel has quote opened the gates of hell on itself. the state department issued a statement condemning the attack. i talked about his earlier with sara seidner and david kirk patrick of the "new york times." >> what is the latest on the fallout? >> what we are seeing are more rockets coming into israel. there have been dozens of air strikes as well since the killing of the leader of the hamas military wing. but he is one of the founders of hamas. how the government there israel is also telling us. and we have heard this from the military spokesperson and they are considering a ground war and have not given the go ahead for that. they are preparing but they are firing from the air. and we know that they have been firing from the sea. their ships anchored off of the sea there firing into gaza and according to residents there, that we spoke with, they say it seemed as if it was raining bombs in gaza. you can see the firing there. there is real concern here that there will be a full-scale war something like you saw in 2008 during the operation the c
